    Does it come with 30 days gametime or is this a sneaky ploy like Trion did where you still had to buy gametime after paying for the client sale?

    Actually Trion had always two types of clients on sale.  There was like 5$ diffrence between those versions. One had 30 gametime, other did not.     It was enough to read short description of those clients. It was written in open text if it had or did not had 30 days in it.

    This one TSW client at Microsoft store do not have any technical desicption stating one way or another.  Kinda Microsoft fault for not providing crucial product description.

    Well I went ahead and got it hoping for the best as none of the other mmos say one way or the other either except for the SWTOR Limited Edition that was $9.99 down from $140.00(too bad those were out of stock)

    TY for the reply.

    No problem.

    Also sorry for being picky, but actually all p2p mmorpg's do say if they include game time.

    I am not only saying this to win argument on internet forum. I am saying this so you and maybe others who read it, be aware that usually informations like that are clearly said, especially on official pages and good shops.   Spending a while on reading what you're actually buying is usually good idea and minimize chance to feel bad after your purcharse.

    Well yeah that was my assumption til I saw Rift on sale in the past for $9.99 but then when it came downt to brass tacks it didnt include any game time.So I just wanted to try to get a bit more info.

    I hope you will wait forever, I don't need no freaking gambling boxes and keys in a cash shop, no xp boosts and unlocking quickslots, no paying for char slots or cooldowns or emotes, in short F2P and B2P are stupid nickel and dime business models for crappy games.

    Contrary to popular belief f2p is not always a bad thing. B2p is the model that has been used since the beginning of video game sales. Subs are more often than not the nickel and dime business model.

    It's fine if you want to take it as an insult to the game and attack another one with cheap unfounded shots. Just remember that when you call someone else a "fanboy".

    What? Subs are nickel and dime model? 50 cents a day for 24/7 entertainment, no restrictions, and no need to pay mass cash to take part in the normal game.

    F2P will always nickle and dime you for even the basics. Need healing potions?.... 3 dollars. Need a mount?.... 20$. Need an extra storage bag?..... 10$. No sorry F2P is BS business trying to suck every penny out of its players.

    50 cents a day and i know what im getting and have no restrictions, any day. On average in F2P games people spend 3-5 times more on cash shops than they do a 50 cents per day subscription.

    Cash shops are horrible business concept for mmo's and cant think why people can spend 100's of dollars on cash shops but cant spend 15 a month on a sub.

    At release i got it for 30$ and it was well worth it jsut for the stories and setting. If you can get it under 30$ then go for it. Play through the story and experience some of the best quests ive seen yet.

    Yeah.  Well personally I think that they should not offer game version without 30-day game time, even if it is cheaper. Similarly like I think that expansions should also contain game time in mmorpg's generally.  Anyway they wrote this and game version with 30 day was just 3-5 $ more expensive depending on when and where you bought it.
    Still it is good to read game features and assume that if something is not mentioned there is not in-game :)

    Not sure how long this offer is going to last, but I think this is a really really good deal. Even for people who hate subs, getting to play this game for 30 days for only $9.99 is a steal. The content is awesome. 

     

    I got lifetime for TSW but for those on the fence, I think it won't get any better than this.
